Entertainment John Krasinski admits to being 'emotionally manipulative' as a screenwriter
John Krasinski surprises moviegoers at A Quiet Place II screening
John Krasinski is surprising fans across the US by turning up to screenings of 'A Quiet Place II'.To mark the sequel to his 2018 horror flick - which he co-wrote, directed, and starred in alongside his wife Emily Blunt - hitting cinemas in the US, the 41-year-old filmmaker jumped on stage at the AMC in Miami this week.
John Krasinski thinks being "emotionally manipulative" is key to screenwriting.
The 41-year-old star directed, co-produced, and wrote 'A Quiet Place Part II', and John relishes the chance to toy with the emotions of fans.
Speaking about some of the subtle hints in his films, he told Empire: "If you hammer people on the head and they see it coming, then they're gonna be looking for it. But if you subconsciously incept them - as Chris Nolan has taught us - if you can incept them ... then that's the most fun.
"And yeah, it's slightly emotionally manipulative because I'm definitely setting you up just to rip your heart out later, but it's my favourite part of film-making."
John Krasinski praises wife Emily Blunt for bringing joy to A Quiet Place II set
John Krasinski has praised his wife Emily Blunt for being the "most talented actress" and for being "such an incredible person to have on set" when they were shooting horror sequel 'A Quiet Place Part II'.The husband and wife duo teamed up again for the horror sequel - which has been directed and written by Krasinski and stars him and his spouse - and he insists that Blunt made the entire shooting experience better for all the cast and crew, not just him.
Last month, meanwhile, John joked he put his marriage "on the line" while shooting 'A Quiet Place Part II'.
The Hollywood star's wife Emily Blunt could barely believe what he was asking her to do on the set of their movie.
Speaking about one particular driving stunt, he shared: "Emily's [stunt] is so real. I think I put my marriage on the line when I put her in the car. That's true.
"Like when I was explaining to her on set all the things that were going to happen and I said, ‘You're going to hit this stunt man, that car is going to come three feet from you and then this bus is actually going to clock at 40 miles an hour,' her face fell and she went, ‘But not really.’ And I went, ‘No, no, the bus is coming at you at 40 miles.’
"That's a real bus, and that bus hits that car and all that is totally real."
